Fresh Watermelon Feta Salad with Mint (Gluten-Free)

Celiac.com 09/05/2014 - If you want an easy, tasty summer salad that will make a splash at your next potluck, look no further than this fresh watermelon feta salad.

This simple recipe combines juicy watermelon, sweet onion, feta, cilantro and mint, with a dash of balsamic vinegar and olive oil to deliver a world of flavor.

I like mint and cilantro, but you can add parsley, watercress, or whatever you like.

Thank you for your reply. I did make sure to keep eating gluten before getting tested. I'm still unsure whether or not I should ask my doctor to run the rest of the tests in the celiac panel.

LOL, re: trousers vs. pants. Here in the US, trousers are a specific kind of pants/slacks, with a looser fit and often with pleats in the front. I also read that Vit D helps digestion; can't recall the links, but likely within Gundry's writings about lectin. My Dr. just told me to res...

I'd try the gluten free diet for a few months to see if that helps at all. Can't hurt. If it doesn't help I'd try a low FODMAP meat and veggies diet.

A good amount of the neurological effects from celiac are also related to nutrient deficiencies caused by malabsorbtion from damaged intestines and the fact that most gluten-free foods are not fortified and your net eating many grains. You sound good about the CC and everything and seem to be tak...
